Hello everyone! How is it already June? Time manages to both fly by and stand still when you’re in lockdown. By now, I am sure you have all heard about the devastating events that recently took place. Racism in any form is unacceptable. This website is a great resource that offers many ways to help and get involved.
In terms of reading, May was an okay month. Life has been a bit hectic lately and my blogging schedule is all over the place. Hopefully, I can settle into a routine again soon.
Heartstopper Vol. 3 by Alice Oseman ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Heartstopper just keeps getting better and better! This is my favourite volume so far. I read the webcomic on Tapas and someone mentioned in the comments that the title is more like Heartwarmer. I could not agree more! 💖 In this third installment, Charlie and Nick go on a school trip to Paris for a week. It’s such a wholesome story and the artwork is magnifique.
Adrian Mole: The Wilderness Years by Sue Townsend ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This was much better than the previous third book in the series. Adrian is now in his early twenties and living in Pandora’s box room in Oxford. He is also working on his terrible novel Lo! The Flat Hills of My Homeland. Adrian’s character is starting to mature, although his poetry and prose writing not so much.
Stuart Little by E.B. White ⭐⭐⭐
A little while ago, I wrote a Top Ten Tuesday post about books I wish I had read as a child and Stuart Little featured on the list. I grew up with the Stuart Little films and have to say I prefer them to the book. It’s a pleasant story, but Stuart is not as charming or thoughtful of his family in E.B. White’s classic. I was a little unhappy with the ending because there doesn’t seem to be any resolution.
In case you missed it!
How was May for you? Let me know in the comments!
